Labour’s Brislington West Candidates:
Carolyn and Rob have already been working hard to achieve change in Brislington.
I’ve lived in Brislington for 9 years and have worked hard in the community. Here are a few of my achievements:
- Secured funding for a residents’ parking scheme.
- Secured a £16,000 grant to roll out youth sessions with charity Empire Fighting Chance.
- Set up a group to get a Park Run going in Brislington.
I have worked directly with the council on:
- Keeping Wick Road Library open.
- Keeping Jubilee Pool open.
- Securing funding for regeneration of Brislington Village.
- Working on a new cycling and walking route along the Tramway from Callington Rd to Sandy Park.
- Obtaining urgent repairs to Sparke Evans Bridge.
- Working with Councillor Tim Rippington to secure the future of the 36 bus.
- Working with my colleague Carolyn Magson to protect facilities such as Jubilee Pool and to attract investment in local High Streets.
Did You Know?
Rob and Carolyn also set up a Park Run group just before the pandemic. As soon as it is possible to do so they will be looking to get that off the ground again. Both candidates are keen cyclists, and want to see improvements to both walking and cycling in the area, including a cycle path along the old railway line to link up the cycle network, which grinds to a halt when it reaches Brislington!
I have been involved in loads of local issues and campaigns from saving the library, to protesting successfully against unsuitable developments, to pushing for better transport. Carolyn Magson
